    I have visited the Japanese Garden regularly for more than 20 years. It is small, so don't expect a giant park. Still, it is a peaceful oasis and is very well maintained. You can feed the koi fish or ...  more »

    Beautiful gardens. A great free attraction if you are nearby. The closest parking is the university parking. Costs money and is huge and crowded. I found a free parking a little further on the street. The gardens are rather small but very beautiful, with many huge fish you can feed with special grains they sell. A great place to sit and relax.

    This garden is just as beautiful as the university! It is also peaceful and relaxing, and even the ducks and koi fish have became my friends after coming here a couple of times!

    Very small park, nicely maintained but if you coming from far, it is not worth. Complete park can be covered in 10min. Fishes in lake is good, we can feed them too.

Where to stay in Long Beach

Most of Long Beach's attractions are near the water, so look for accommodations around East Ocean Boulevard. Downtown sits right in this vicinity, so you'll find plenty of rooms in large hotels, many of which have undergone recent and extensive renovations. For quieter environs with convenient access to the beach, look for cottages, houses, and apartments for rent east of downtown. Many of these offer ocean views. Naples Island at the east end of the beach is Long Beach's toniest neighborhood; the prices of accommodations here reflect this.
